Right click for folder player.

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics,microsoft.public.windowsxp.music,rec.video.desktop (More info?)

Hi there,
Does anyone remember the ability to right click on a file such as MP3 and
have it play right there and then. I used to have it, maybe pre XP, but it
was so useful. I think a small window would also appear over the folder,
for a photo too.
I would love to know what little gem this was, maybe started with P.
Thanks,
Phil

    Play
    Queue it up
    Add to playlist

    Is Windows Media Player your default player???

    Hey Byte and Wes,
    Thanks for your replies but Tarkus has hit on the one I want, thanks Tarkus.
    my original question was not too clear I fear. I know you can open with
    programs like WMPlayer but the PicaView operation is instantaneous play.
    Very handy for quick play. I will check it out.
    Cheers,
    Phil

    Actually Wes,
    Queue-It-Up might be OK since it starts WMPlayer quick and I can't see how
    to install PicaView without installing the whole ACD mPower Tools program.
    Still looking at it all.
    Thanks

    Phil;

    50 bucks is 50 bucks.
    Queue-It-Up doesn't start any faster for me than Play.
    Double clicking a file does the same thing.

    I fail to see how PicaView is going to start WMP quicker.
    I would be interested in knowing if it does. :-)

    Keep having fun.

    Well PicaView has nothing to do with WMP. It is an entirely different set
    up.
    If you like, you can download the trial ACD mPower Tools v1.0.2.0006 that
    contains PicaView as I just did
    http://www.pcworlddownload.com/multimedia-graphics/image-viewer/PicaView.htm
    Then right click a song or pic or movie file name to see the action. You
    may like it, you may not. You can then uninstall it.
